9-month 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

9-Month Yoga Teacher Training Program

Yoga Alliance-Certified 240-Hour
Yoga Teacher Training & Advanced Yoga Studies


The long-format nine-month program, our original offering introduced in 2008, attracts students who desire a more leisurely immersive experience to really absorb the materials, the studies, and the practices. During nine months of weekends students immerse themselves into the cocoon of study and sangha. Some students identify the feeling of this program as being part of nine weekend retreats - the opportunity to get away from it all and connect deeply with each other and their practice. Students managing work and/or busy households often find that this program provides the best work-life balance for them and their families. Like all of our 200-hour programs, this program offers dynamic and highly rated content and the same experienced senior and supporting faculty who are dedicated to helping you develop your authentic teaching voice.

I've been involved in physical fitness all my life.  Football, weight-lifting, running, Tae Kwon Do, and Kung Fu. A good friend suggested I try yoga. Fifteen minutes into the class I realized yoga was my calling. Within a week I found Green Lotus. I knew I was home. After two years of practice I decided to become an instructor.  Green Lotus's instructors are very professional and give you the one-on-one support to help you become a true yogi. My yoga journey at Green Lotus has fulfilled me physically, mentally, and spiritually.
